There are so many perks to working from home – no commuting costs or stress, starting and finishing your day whenever you like, staying in your pyjamas all day – and, until recently, only one downside – with no co-workers to chat to, it can be lonely. But that could soon be a thing of the past, thanks to the Thought Fort.
The Thought Fort (80 Wickham Street, Fortitude Valley) is Brisbane's first co-working space for creative and online freelancers and telecommuters. It's kinda like a big public office, with the workers renting out their workspace. For $25 per day, you will receive a desk, Internet connection and printer access in an air conditioned office boasting a foosball table and beers on Friday.
You'll also be provided with instant co-workers. The Thought Fort already has several permanent monthly tenants so you're guaranteed company and someone to discuss last night's episode of Masterchef with. You may find yourself working alongside someone in the same industry, providing you with networking and creative opportunities you never would have received at home.
If you're a work from home employee or freelance worker desperate for some company during the day, express your interest in a Thought Fort workspace via their website.
